POETRY: To See by William Blake

NOTE: I didn’t get a podcast episode posted this week, so you’ll have to forgive me.  This weekend, I was reminded of one of my favorite pieces of poetry, though, and wanted to share it.

To See

By William Blake

To see…

To see a world in a grain of sand,
And a heaven in a wild flower,
Hold infinity in the palm of your hand
And eternity in an hour.

    That was really beautiful Steve so thank you for sharing that. I don’t read a lot of poetry but that doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy hearing it. Loved that and hope you’re doing well.

    Enjoy your week.


    • I don’t read a lot of poetry either, but I’ve heard this one over and over. Heard Dr. Wayne Dyer quote it the other day and had to share it with my “gang”

      Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing your bright smile and kind words. So grateful that our paths crossed this past year online.

    I love the poetry thank you Steve for the fresh boost of inspiration today.

    I was tagged in a blog game today that gave me time for a little internal reflection and inspiration – and I’ve tagged you in my response. Don’t feel any pressure to respond but thank you for inspiring me:

    • Hi, Hannah! Thanks for stopping by the blog and taking the time to post a comment. I’m so glad that these simple words were an inspiration to you. I’m grateful that I was the conduit to spread a little joy and inspiration.
